Moving. Must sell this weekend. Buyers via cash or certified fund, pickup in NE ohio:

A set of 4 movie theater seats: All the metal has been cleaned and painted matte black. All hardware (nuts and bolts) completely replaced. The cloth seats and backs are a green/blue mix. The arms are wood (no cup holders)- but I have wrapped them in cloth and added small foam blocks to pad them (can be easily removed if needed).

I have a 5th seat for parts.

The seats are mounted (bolted) on a GREY carpeted riser made from 2x6 and 3/4 ply. Very sturdy and sleek!

All seats and fabric in good condition (might use a steam clean if you have a hand steamer).


$75 includes riser- LOCAL PICKUP THIS WEEKEND- or early Week. THIS ARE FREE FOR ANYONE WHO WILL COME AND TAKE THEM APART AND MOVE THEM!

I think I have like $200 in the seats, paint, hardware, foam and cleaning.

The lumber, carpet and fasteners for the riser platform alone cost more than $150!

Will have pictures later tonight, hopefully. Email questions/offers ASAP!

Vince,
I don't want these seats, but if you drop the price I might take them and just store them until I find someone wanting them.
I don't check this sight as much as others, so e-mail me direct @

How wide are the seats while sitting on that platform? Thats what Im concerned about.

And how high off the ground does the platform come off the ground?

The riser is made from 2x6 - so it's right about 6 inches tall.

The riser is 3 foot deep by 8 feet long. The seats are about 7 feet total of the 8 feet of the riser.

Someone emailed me a month ago saying they wanted these- but I don't have the email with me (I downloaded it to my PC in LA unfortunately)-- so if this was you- get in touch ASAP, I will only be in Ohio for a few days.

Why do you have to come during Deer season?!?!?! I'd grab them in a heartbeat but the round trip with the holiday/Deer season looks bad.

Guys,

I'm heading back to Ohio and so this are available again. I'm thinking "FREE" is a good asking price (but keep in mind that the price will directly reflect how effort I will be putting into moving them, etc.)

I should be back in Ohio around the end of June or beginning of July.

I have gotten a few emails asking about condition, here's the story:

I bought these from a defunct theater several years ago. I completely stripped them down, had the seatbottoms and posts blasted to remove rust and then painted "chalkboard black."

The cloth parts were cleaned using a steamcleaner (and you wouldn't believe the filth that this thing sucked out, the cloth was 4 shades lighter).

I added cloth and foam padding to the arms. I bought all new hardware, reassembled them and bolted them to the carpeted riser.

The cloth is all in good shape, no rips or anything. Considering their age (they did duty in a theater for 10 years) they look PHENOMENAL... overall I would rate their condition as VERY GOOD.

The only small issue is that the one small bit of metal attached to the plastic backs was not painted, so it is still blue (seen in pics above). I never found it very obvious, but you might wanna paint it if you're crafty in the DIY ways.

I also even have a tech drawing to have a metalshop cut number tags for the seats, so if you know anyone with a punchpress, you could have custom plates made.


Again- free to a good home as long as you show up with a buddy and some tools (the seats will not come out of the room while bolted onto the riser). If you want me to have it "ready to load" i can dismantle and move it myself but it'll cost you $50- or some DVD trades!
